Updated Terms of Service and new Site Policy repository

We're updating our Terms of Service (https://help.github.com/articles/github-terms-of-service/) and Corporate Terms of Service (https://help.github.com/articles/github-corporate-terms-of-service/). These revisions are the result of community feedback, along with clarifications and improvements to the readability of both documents. All changes are in separate pull requests in a new working repository, github/site-policy (https://github.com/github/site-policy). Here, you can view, comment, and suggest additional updates—or fork a copy to adapt for your own site.

Please submit your comments by 5:00 pm PST on Friday, July 28. After that, we’ll take a week to go through your comments and make changes to improve the Terms. The new Terms will become effective on Monday, August 7.

Pull requests welcome

We welcome you to look over our changes and share your input using the new Site Policy repository. Please follow our Contributor Guidelines (https://github.com/github/site-policy/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md) , and let us know if you see anything you think should be different—whether it’s a missed typo or a rule that might have implications we haven’t thought of.
